Burnley vs Coventry: Our top betting predictions

Burnley arrive into this match as significant favourites owing to how impressive they've been under Vincent Kompany. Will they prove the bookies right be sweeping aside Coventry? Find out with our Burnley vs Coventry match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Burnley juggernaut to keep on rolling

Burnley are top of the Championship table right now and they're unlikely to go anywhere else; they're absolutely flying right now and playing some great football to boot. In general terms, their form is good. At home, they're ridiculous. They've not lost a home game all season in any competition and they've now won eight on the spin meaning they've taken 31 points from a possible 39 in front of their own fans so far this season. Coventry by contrast are one of the worst teams in the  league when focussed on away form only and they've lost their last two on the road. The only surprise here is that the odds aren't worse!

Both teams to score

Our second prediction for Burnley vs Coventry is that both teams will score in the match. Burnley's home form is, as detailed in the previous tip, exceptionally strong but they do concede goals; four of their last six home games have seen both teams score. Coventry meanwhile are fairly consistent scorers on the road as evidenced by the fact they've netted in four of their past five away games. On top of that, the last three times Burnley have entertained Coventry we have seen goals at both ends. More of the same awaits here.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the bookies odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game and how might that impact your view of our predictions? Let's find out.

Burnley odds: 9/13 (1.69) – 59%

Draw odds: 11/4 (3.75) – 27%

Coventry odds: 4/1 (5.00) – 20%

Burnley, whilst favourites, aren't obscenely short with the bookies, however, a look at the draw and away win prices tells a story of how much of an ask it will be for Coventry to record a win at Turf Moor. If you're adamant that Burnley are going to ease to victory over the Sky Blues then tapping into some of the other ‘to win' markets could see your odds become quite tasty; a simple -1 handicap will push the Burnley price well beyond evens.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Burnley vs Coventry

Burnley

If it ain't broke, don't try and fix it. There is a reason phrases become sayings and at Burnley right now things certainly aren't broke. Well, apart from opposition hearts. Kompany's men are breezing games at Turf Moor at the moment and a settled lineup – and certainly a settled spine – is playing it's role. We don't expect to see much different this time out.

Predicted lineup – Muric (GK), Roberts, Harwood-Bellis, Beyer, Maatsen, Cork, Cullen, Benson, Brownhill, Zaroury, Rodriguez

Coventry

Coventry might have their work cut out to get a result at Turf Moor regardless but their injury crisis certainly doesn't help. Callum O'Hare, Tyler Walker and Matt Godden are amongst six players on the sidelines. Viktor Gyokeres though is likely to play despite ongoing speculation over his future.

Predicted lineup – Wilson (GK), Rose, Doyle, Panzo, Kane, Hamer, Allen, Bidwell, Palmer, Waghorn, Gyokeres

Player to watch

Burnley have an abundance of talent in their ranks this season but we're picking out Manuel Benson ahead of this game. He bagged a brace as the Clarets dumped Premier League Bournemouth out of the FA Cup last time out and it wasn't just a one off. Those goals took his overall goal contributions for the season to 12 – he's scored nine and assisted three.
